I think $150 for 4 place settings is really inexpensive, I wouldn’t worry about it at all.

I just attended a bridal shower for a friend who isn’t high maintenance at all and her fine china was $70 per place setting.  In addition, she registered for Waterford Lismore glassware that is $80+ per glass.  I’m thinking of registering for china that is $100 per place setting.

I really think you’re totally fine.  Stuff costs money, some of the items on your registry will be more expensive, it’s not a problem.  People will still get you whatever it is that they are comfortable with.

We registered for 6 5-piece place settings ~$100/pp (Amazon prices fluctuate) and got them all.  We didn’t really need the nice china, but it felt like a “wedding” thing to register for.  I’m really into the mismatched china look now, so I’m planning on getting a bunch of vintage china off of eBay instead.  We also got a set of flatware for 12 ppl for around $200, which I will definitely keep and use.

We are having about 90 people at the wedding, and registered for Williams Sonoma dishes at just over $100pp (not fine china cause we’ll never use it) – 12 place settings.

We’re having 60 people, and I registered four place settings of something in between everyday and formal at $70 per setting. Then I registered a 4-setting flatware set which I briefed was selling $140. If no one gets them, I’ll buy them with the Bed Bath and Beyond completion discount!
